12 The basic telephone circuit. A two-wire circuit with battery. Sender and destination are identical and interchangeable, each with microphone and earpiece. The battery sends a current around the circuit that is modulated by the sound waves impinging on both microphones. As the current also passes through the earpieces, each person hears the other, plus their own voice as well. Where secrecy is required, then this simple circuit falls down, for the signals are not isolated from each other. Overhearing or interference of one signal by another can only be eliminated when each signal has its own circuit, or channel.

Discuss problems with the code, seek ‘best guess’ answers for the decode and check whether it’s correct or not. The cable and its many links can degrade quite a lot now and still bring the far side of the world right into the room where you’re sitting. Such technology wasn’t available to Bell, of course, but people still wanted to talk.. Time and the complex signal 27 CHAPTER 3 WHAT I S VIDEO? Video has many features based directly on the points discussed in the previous chapters. There are also new ones, particularly where colour is introduced, but these will not be dealt with until black and white video has been thoroughly investigated.

Both source and display must start at exactly the same time, maintain step, and finish at the same time. This is called ‘synchronism’. Should they get out of step the display will not know which part of the signal is which, will become confused and fail to reconstruct the picture. Time is the fundamental parameter here. And time is relatively easy to measure electronically; our quartz watches are excellent examples of this. Consider a camera pointed at a scene, its electronic clock, or timebase, instructs the processor of the CCD sensor chip on which the image is focused, to start the sequence with line 1.
